This is in regards to the anti epileptic medication Aptiom. My neurologist explained to me that it was a calcium blocker. My question is that since it is a calcium blocker, could this prevent my body from absorbing calcium properly into my bones? Causing over time osteoporosis and tooth weakening as well as basic bone structure weakening?
Rebel3; You will be fine it does not stop all kinds of calcium from being absorbed into your system. The medication your taking works on one are and does not have anything to stop you from absorbing the good calcium. But make sure you talk to your Pharmacist or doctor again to explain it better to you have a good evening.
